  1. Thanks! I'll take a look at those. We've done a few HALs but either inside or regular balconies.
  2. Do any of HAL's ships have balcony cabins or suites with a hot tub on the balcony? Kind of hard to tell from various web sites. Thanks!
  3. Thanks again! I have been interested in MSC since the Seaside was announced, thinking the design was quite unique. Since we usually travel in an inside cabin, I can see where that experience may not be as good as balcony or suite. However, that gives us more money to spend on excursions. Sadly, I don't see any itineraries they do that really call to me. Our future cruise plans include at least one Oasis-class with balcony, a British Isles cruise (MSC has none, but Princess looks good there), a Panama Canal cruise (HAL for that, unless we do the Carnival 9-day out of Galveston), and an Antarctica cruise (looks like maybe Celebrity there, unless we get a last-minute deal on Ponant or something). We'll eventually do another Med cruise, but with the airfare, it would need to be longer than 7 days. Our 12-day on NCL Spirit was pretty awesome, despite being their oldest ship, smallest inside cabin with 4 adults. The price and itinerary was awesome there. Still, not sure we would ever do NCL again, although we docked next to the Breakaway and it looked almost as large as the Liberty. And I love the Peter Max hull art.
  4. Wow, that looks awesome. I forwarded the info to sister-in-law. I know that MSC does (or did) let you transfer your level from another cruise line, and we got ours transferred because we were originally booked on the MSC ... Seaside(?) for last Halloween before switching to the Liberty out of Galveston. My wife has 54 days on Princess, so that might help. Did you book through them, or use a TA? Was that a 1-week, or longer?
  5. Thanks for all of the feedback. Not sure we will ever do this, especially once sister-in-law finds out how much booking one of those suites will cost. No interest in MSC, but Celebrity is a possibility. I'll investigate further. And I'll also ask on the HAL and Princess forums, and will report back here if I get anything positive.
  6. We parked next to the Allure last week in Cozumel. While there, we noticed some balcony cabins had hot tubs. We were on deck 11 of the Liberty, and these cabins were at about the same level. However, none of the deck plans I see mention a hot tub. Can any of you tell me what category these cabins are? And whether Oasis might have similar cabins, especially after the upcoming refurbishment? Do any other Royal ships have balconies with hot tubs? (I assume if Allure did, all Oasis-class ships will). And if you know of any other lines (Carnival, Celebrity, Princess, HAL) with balcony hot tubs, please let me know. My sister-in-law has decided that's what they want on our next shared cruise. Thanks! Dana
  7. That's weird, presumably a typo somewhere. I returned from Liberty just a week ago. We had the 2 device package (daughter's phone, my laptop) and by booking in advance, I believe the total was around $17/day.
  8. We're booked on Liberty for Halloween. I had been told that we could not bring on any water or soda, only the one bottle of wine per adult (max 2 per cabin). Since you didn't mention it, can I assume they let you bring on the water?
